Baltic Sea Farmer of the Year Award 2010
The award-winning farmers in this year’s brochure have all decided to take steps towards sustainable agriculture. Not only have they helped the Baltic Sea ecosystem, they have also found new joy in their work and many of them have increased their profit in the process. This year’s winners, the Swedish couple Håkan and Teri Lee Eriksson, have been awarded the Baltic Sea Farmer of the Year Award 2010 for their “dedicated commitment to showing how a modern farm can apply environmental measures to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus losses. By using modern and innovative techniques that are being systematically documented, nutrient losses have been significantly reduced. It is the jury's belief that the Erikssons have really gone the extra mile to save the Baltic Sea, and that the measures they have taken can be replicated by many other similar farms in the Baltic Sea region”.
